SERVPRO Handles All Stages of Fire Damage, Including Debris Removal

8/29/2020 (Permalink)

The professionals at SERVPRO Des Moines NW are trained to provide a multi-level response to fire damage, including fire and smoke restoration, odor control, upholstery and fabric cleaning. 

Additionally, our company offers debris removal services.  SERVPRO prides itself on providing our customers with an all-inclusive solution during difficult times, such as in the aftermath of a fire. 

Why Debris Removal Requires a Call to Professionals

Contrary to what one might think, cleaning up after a fire is not simply a matter of wiping up dirt and ash or collecting damaged belongings.  The residues left by a fire can emit toxic fumes and physical contact with soiling and rubble can cause irritation or bodily harm. As a result, professionals are needed to sort, bag and discard fire debris. 

Our certified and experienced SERVPRO team, equipped with top-of-the line products and cleaning equipment, provide safe, effective and lawful clean-up and disposal services.  Our technicians will complete your job in a timely manner, implement environmental safeguards and minimize any health risks. 

Protecting Against Airborne Residues

First, it is essential to restrict hazardous airborne and settled residues, as well as damaged building materials and contents.  To do this, our SERVPRO technicians seal off the workspace using negative pressure air scrubbing technology.  The air scrubber will direct contaminated air through HEPA filters and vents to the outdoors. 

Our team members also dress in personal protective equipment (PPE) for safety purposes, as well as to avoid tracking fire debris through the rest of your home or business.

Debris Disposal

As a result of chemical reactions caused by a fire, there are countless toxic substances that SERVPRO technicians encounter.  Our crew collects and packs the charred and melted items into designated containment receptacles.  There is an array of items that are contained, including drywall, woodwork, household goods, flooring and other contents— essentially, any item that cannot be restored due to severe damage.

Additional Expertise

Our professionals are well-versed in the local and state requirements dictating debris removal, which will serve to protect you from violations or citations during this process. 

Housing construction in the area may pre-date the current codes governing lead paint, asbestos and other hazards.  As a result, SERVPRO professionals keep an eye out for these dangerous materials during the initial assessment and procure certified removal of these substances during the debris removal process. 

Additionally, our trained technicians are continuously on the lookout for any structural weaknesses that may have been caused by the fire.

Call SERVPRO of Des Moines NW today to make sure every step of your response plan is expertly handled, including clean up and debris removal following a fire.  We are available day or night to take your call.  Contact us at (515) 986-3711.
